3. User Accounts and Registration
(a) Guest Accounts.

For the purposes of this User Agreement "Personal Information" is defined as a user's first initial and last name, email address, physical address, telephone number, any payment card or financial information and any other information that by itself or in connection with other information we collect and store is capable of identifying a natural human person.

4. Vegas World "Currency" and Virtual Items
(a) Currency. The Website includes a component of in-world fictional currency ("Currency" or "Flow" or "Coins"), which has no monetary or financial value outside of the Website. Currency may be used to "purchase" certain virtual items available in Vegas World, such as clothing items, hotel suites, and power-up charms ("Virtual Items"). The Currency is Vegas World Content which we distribute via the Website in our sole discretion and to which you are granted a limited license right to use in accordance with these Terms. Vegas World may charge fees for the right to use Currency, or may distribute Currency without charge, in its sole discretion. Currency is not redeemable for any sum of money or monetary value from Vegas World at any time and does not constitute contractually binding consideration or payment of any kind, including in exchange for your agreement to the User Agreement or your Game play. You agree that Vegas World has the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate such Currency as it sees fit in its sole discretion, in any general or specific case, and that Vegas World will have no liability to you based on its exercise of such right.
(b) Transfer of Currency and Virtual Items. Currency and Virtual Items may be transferred to other users solely as described on the Website and subject to these Terms. Because Currency has no monetary value, you may not transfer or resell Currency (or Virtual Items) in any manner, including, without limitation, by means of any direct sale or auction service.
(c) Automatic Termination of Currency. Currency must be used by you within one (1) year of the date of acquisition. If you do not use your Currency to acquire Virtual Items within one (1) year of the date of acquisition, and you still have an active Account, we may (but are not required to) offer you the chance to convert any unused Currency into Virtual Items, or we may convert unused Currency into Virtual Items for you as determined by Vegas World in its sole discretion.
(d) Forfeiting Currency and Virtual Items. All Currency and Virtual Items may be forfeited if (i) your Account or access to the Website is terminated or suspended for any reason, in Vegas World's sole and absolute discretion; (ii) if Vegas World discontinues availability of the Website or (iii) if you fail to login to Vegas World for any ninety (90) day period.
(e) Erroneous Credits. You may be granted Currency through mechanisms created by Vegas World. Vegas World reserves the right to remove Currency from your Account if it determines that said grants of Currency were inaccurately awarded or for any other reasons it deems necessary. Vegas World also assumes no responsibility for any malfunction of the Website, which might result in the loss of Currency.
(f) Discontinuing Operations. Should Vegas World find it necessary to discontinue operations and/or take down the Website, it is under no obligation to offer any type of compensation for Currency or other Virtual Items that have been acquired through the Website.
Currency and Virtual Items are Vegas World Content to which users receive a limited license right in Vegas World's discretion. Currency and Virtual Items ARE NOT redeemable for money or any other form of value or consideration from Vegas World.
